Manmade islands are all the rage in the Gulf region, but this one is a political chasm, not a luxury residence play. Plus Norwegian shifts some service and Stroopwafels are taking a break at United.
Does it feel like this trio of topics come up too often? Maybe if they weren’t always doing silly things we’d venture out more. But not this week. Because American, United and Rolls-Royce continue to dig themselves into holes. Ouch.
We mean long routes, not an extra long episode, so don’t worry too much about that. Then again, some of our conversations are pretty long rambles. Enjoy!
If you’re going to sneak into Canada we suggest a Trojan Zamboni as the obvious choice for transportation. And apparently Quebec is the best place to make your move.
A great credit card debate to kick things off this week. Which is terribly unusual, but also pretty interesting. Also, the US3 v ME3 might finally be settled, with a bit of Mexican collateral damage. And do people really care that much about tomato juice on board!?!
Fozz almost got stuck in Berlin this weekend, but quick thinking saved the day. Also, errors bring lawsuits, The ME3 are all sorts of crazy and purple is coming to Delta’s uniforms.
Aircraft engines are causing more than their share of issues these days. Failures on the ground and in the air are raising lots of questions. We’re mostly about asking them, not answering them in this episode. Plus cabin retrofits, new planes, routes and more.
Don’t worry: This episode isn’t nearly as long as the flights we’re talking about. But with Perth-London service launched recently we’re all about the very, very long flights. Plus, special guest Cynthia Drescher is back to join in the conversation.
Clicking the like button costs one Marriott employee his job. American is crying foul in Chicago and Delta’s efforts to remain neutral aren’t working out so well. Plus, an awful way to motivate employees comes to United Airlines!
A blown tire in Newark caused rolling delays and some pretty poor customer service in Portland. Delta struck a nerve in Georgia that could hurt it on the fuel tax front. Also, some talk about battery fires and lots of other news this week.
